When tissues are damaged or become aged, their reparative mechanisms are often no longer as effective. Stem cell therapy may help! Regenerative Cell Institute provides the most advanced stem cell therapy procedures for treating orthopedic conditions including knee and spine disease, elbow and hand problems, ankle and foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, and osteoarthritis.
Stem cells are naturally occurring cells in the body that have the capability to differentiate, meaning they can turn into a specific type of cell. Stem cells also have the capability to promote the repair and regeneration of a variety of damaged tissues. Mesenchymal stem cells are a particular category of cells that can produce bone, cartilage, ligament, and tendon tissues. These cells produce a variety of chemicals (growth factors and cytokines) that signal other cells to repair, decrease inflammation, and inhibit the breakdown of tissues. These cells are in high concentration in certain parts of the body, including bone marrow and fat. Mesenchymal stem cells are highly effective in reducing spine and joint pain.
Regenerative Cell Institute’s stem cell therapy for spine and joint pain management is both groundbreaking and minimally invasive. Dr. Santos personally evaluates each patient to assess their condition and develop a customized treatment plan. We begin by harvesting the patient’s own stem cells from blood, fat, or bone marrow, and then employ a proprietary method of concentrating stem cells to obtain the highest yield of stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP). Next, we formulate a customized cocktail of stem cells and PRP to address the patient’s condition and deliver the highest concentration of stem cells to relieve the pain associated with their orthopedic condition. Using fluoroscopic guidance, the stem cells are injected directly into the patient’s ailing joint or soft tissue to deliver targeted pain relief. Once injected, the regenerative cells stimulate the body to repair and rebuild tissue that has either degenerated over time or been traumatized from injury or overuse.
By using precise injections of a patient’s own stem cells or blood platelets, Dr. Santos sparks the body’s ability to heal orthopedic conditions of the knees, hips, spine, elbows, hands, ankles, feet, and shoulders as well as pain associated with osteoarthritis.
